What is Anger Management?
Anger management is more than just controlling anger. It is a way for individuals, employees, and employers to learn how to deal with the conflict and stress that is part of our everyday lives.
It seems that there is a need – perhaps now more than ever – to learn how to deal with anger. Too many people “fly off the handle” at work and at home. Anger
management enables you to deal with the problems that arise when facing any type of conflict.
Not everyone reacts to anger the same way. While one person may storm out of a room, another may yell, and yet another may even hit someone. These behaviors make you think of “anger management.” But what about the person who simply ignores conflict? Or the one who runs away from it? They both need help, too. This is where anger management classes come in.
We deal with conflict each and every day. Some conflicts are large, and others are so tiny that we barely notice them. How you deal with conflict, however, not only makes a statement about your personality but also about the way you have learned to deal with life. If you are able to deal with conflict at a level of emotional competence using open and positive communication skills, you will fare better in both your work and your personal life.
Anger management trains you to deal with anger and conflict in a positive manner. Prior to teaching you anger management, we will assess your ability to deal with conflict. After that, your training will focus on developing your emotional competence, your communication skills, and your resiliency. We will teach you
different ways to negotiate conflict, communicate effectively, manage your anger, reduce your stress, and live a happier, more fulfilling life.
